Two of the most notable comedies to arrive in recent weeks have a strident and, at the same time, joyous feminist edge. Streaming on Hulu, the 2021 movie "Plan B" stars Victoria Moroles and Kuhoo Verma as teens making a trip across South Dakota to find a "morning after" birth control pill. Streaming on Peacock, the U.K. comedy series "We Are Lady Parts" follows the fish-out-water tale of a band of punk rockers who happen to be young women from London's Muslim community.
Fairly or not, feminism has often been attacked as a province of white, upper-middle-class, college-educated women. Both "Plan B" and "Lady Parts" gather strength from their settings, where women from decidedly modest backgrounds run up against the conservative orthodoxy of their religious communities.
